27 years ago this evening the band leaves Alaska with one of their finer electric versions of "Broke-Down Palace" Jerry adds that nice touch of being "fragile" here (in "Stelle Blue" as well) ...other highlights throughout the show; not sure which recording is best but here's one:

A fine show indeed, Ashes. The Sugaree features a rare keyboard solo after which Jerry jumps in with a very distorted sound on his solo, which I've never heard before on any other versions. The Lazy> Supplication has Garcia playing notes at the speed of sound. The soundboard is one of the better boards from 1980 and the aud is really just as good, so you cant go wrong either way.
